When you think of empowering women and girls, you think of Bill Clinton.
Just ask Monica Lewinsky, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, or any of the many other women the former president claims he “did not have sexual relations with.”
For reasons that make sense only to the writers of “Mad Men” or anyone who has slept through the #metoo movement, somebody thought it was a good idea to have Vice President Kamala Harris sit down with the hands-on old president to talk about “empowering women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.”
The event was advertised as part of the 13th annual Clinton Global Initiative University meeting, held Friday at Harris’ alma mater, Howard University.
Despite the predictable backlash the organizers received from the tone deaf session, Harris and Clinton went on with the show.
Surprisingly, there were no questions about just how empowering Clinton was when he did indeed have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky, a 22-year-old White House intern at the time. But the virtual event afforded Harris plenty of opportunities to promote the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion money dump and its impacts on “working families, single mothers, and people of colour.”
“Why can’t the Democratic Party quit Bill Clinton? He’s a political millstone around its neck,” Celia Viggo Wexler, wrote for Think, NBC’s opinion site.
The Democratic Party can’t quit Bill Clinton for the same reason it elected Uncle Creepy Joe Biden: It’s populated by hypocrites.
Bill Clinton, Kamala Harris and the people who thought it wise to let a sexual predator pontificate on empowering girls and women, collectively, are Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
